Book recommendation?

Hi again,

Looking for recommendations on a good beginners guide to Linux. I used Mandrake 9.2 but would prefer a general book that was not distro-specific. I was thinking about Linux for Dummies etc etc.

What says you......

The Linux Documentation Project

Maybe more specifically:
